There have been some mixed emotions to Star Wars X-Wing 2.0, but it’s looking to be a bright reboot. Come see the latest on X-Wing launch weekend!
Sure there has been some flak in the community about the structure of X-Wing Second edition, but the game hasn’t gotten a real update in nearly 8 years.
X-Wing Second Edition
If you didn’t know, the game will run off of their squad-building app that hasn’t actually come out yet (as of this posting). There won’t be any points on the cards, or upgrade slots either. Bottom line, if there’s any FAQ’s or points changes, they can update everything from the app.
That way, your cards and data sheets will never go out of date.
If you want full control over the pilots and upgrades in your squadron, however, X-Wing Second Edition introduces the X-Wing squad-builder app. In the first edition of X-Wing, a ship’s upgrade slots and the point costs of ship cards and upgrade cards were printed directly on the card. With the advent of X-Wing Second Edition, these point values and upgrade slots will be governed by the app! Rather than using point values printed on the ship cards and upgrade cards, the squad-builder tracks all point values and the upgrade slots available to a ship at any time. What’s more, this app explains the rules of squad-point building and enforces these rules so that players do not accidentally build illegal squads.
Don’t forget that the initial cost to get into the game may be high, but the models and material you get shouldn’t ever become obsolete.

Star Wars X-Wing is looking to be well-thought out with the player’s wallets in mind. Like we said before, the initial cost may be a little expensive, but you don’t have to worry about any FAQs making the things you buy go out of date. Everything will be run from the app where you can find the points as they change.
